Bond Offshore Helicopters CEO quits for airline job

Bond Offshore Helicopters CEO quits for airline job

10-Feb-2015 Source:

Just over two years since he was appointed as CEO of Bond Offshore Helicopters, Luke Farajallah has been announced as the new CEO of British airline Flybe effective from 1st April.  This sees a return to his roots, given Bond’s announcement in early November 2012 said he had experience with Spanish startup low-cost airline Volotea and prior to that he held senior roles in Wizz Air (COO), Spanair (COO), and at easyJet where he was the Regional GM for the UK & Eire. Luke also enjoyed a diverse 17-year career with British Airways.

Farajallah was also appointed in September 2013 to the board of Oil & Gas UK, the representative organisation for the oil and gas industry, a role he will no doubt reverse out of too.

Exeter-based Flybe announced that Farajallah will be taking over as its new chief of operations, replacing current director of operations, John Palmer – who is in turn taking a new role with Boeing.

Luke Farajallah will not be the only ex-easyJet executive at Flybe.  Chief Executive Saad Hammad, Chief Commercial Officer Paul Simmons and Director of Communications and Public Affairs Andrew McConnell all previously held senior positions at the orange-branded airline.  There was no point in time when all four were there concurrently, although Farajallah, Hammad and Simmons were all there together for three months between June and September 2006, according to their LinkedIn profiles.
